How the hell does one get to the point where they are on the TDF team if really afraid of fast descents? Surely he would have done plenty of them in races leading up to July..? http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/pinot-out-of-tour-de-france

Yeah, they were just talking about that on the live feed today.

My thing is how did he get this far road racing?

He had a bad crash a few years back, and his fear seems to be getting worse instead of better. Maybe some hypnosis is in order, or maybe a new job.

Not a spoiler: Froome almost went done within a few meters of where Beloki broke his hip. Hot tar is scary on two wheels.

I feel for the guy - Pinot not Froome. This has got to be tough for him.

good article in NY Times re: descending, albeit a bit factually inaccurate...
